About Our Spiritual Community
We are a New Thought Center that follows the teaching of Ernest Holmes our founder. We believe in a Metaphysical approach to life and the teachings of the Bible. We do not take the Bible literally. We see everyone as an expression of the One God. We are not separate from God / Spirit whatever name we give to the Power in the Universe greater than we are, we are One with It. There is nothing to be healed, only Truth to be revealed and that Truth is that God lives within each one of us and expresses in infinitely diverse ways through each of us. God is not out in heaven, apart from us – God is in us and all around us. Nothing can separate us from God. There is no such thing as sin, only missing the mark. Making a mistake does define our life, we live in the eternal NOW moment. We are not bound by the past. We live in the present and have positive expectancy of our future.
The Center of Spiritual Living Parker has been in the Parker community since January 2003. Services are held at Cimarron Middle School each Sunday at 10 a.m. The messages and music presentations are uplifting and life-affirming. Children enjoy their own lessons of empowerment in our Youth Ministry Learning Center. We all have fun each week as we strengthen our spiritual connection to God and learn to be an positive presence in the world.
What We Believe – by Dr. Ernest Holmes
- We believe in God, the living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute, and self-existent Cause. This One manifests Itself in and through all creation, but is not absorbed by Its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God.
- We believe in the incarnation of the Spirit in US, and that all PEOPLE are incarnations of the One Spirit.
- We believe in the eternality, the immortality, and the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever expanding.
- We believe that HEAVEN is within US, and that we experience IT to the degree that we become conscious of It.
- We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.
- We believe in the unity of all life, and that the highest God and the innermost God is one God. We believe that God is personal to all who feel this indwelling Presence.
- We believe in the direct revelation of Truth through our intuitive and spiritual nature, and that ANYONE may become a revealer of Truth who lives in close contact with the indwelling God.
- We believe that the Universal Spirit, which is God, operates through a Universal Mind, which is the Law of God; and that we are surrounded by this Creative Mind which receives the direct impress of our thought and acts upon it.
- We believe in the healing of the sick through the power of this Mind.
- We believe in the control of conditions through the power of this Mind.
- We believe in the eternal Goodness, the eternal Loving-kindness, and the eternal Givingness of Life to all.
- We believe in our own soul, our own spirit, and our own destiny; for we understand that OUR LIFE is God.
